It is many years since we stayed. On arriving a young elephant appeared to welcome us. The room had a balcony overlooking the river. The hotel very rustic, but perfect. The grounds fantastic for just walking around to search for wildlife & birds. A small herd of elephants crossed over the river. Not far to travel for wonderful safari adventures....

A nice cool place for relaxing and enjoyment with friends and families. The lodge has very helpful, friendly and attentive staff. They have nice and delicious food. There is a nearby river to the lodge and is a good nature with monkeys roaming around, big crocodiles in water and elephants quenching their thirst from the hot weather. The only place...
